Breaking Down Our Sales Blitz Strategy

Nearly every travel destination is going to experience off seasons at certain times of the year (if you don’t, let us just say — lucky you!). During lean times, it’s essential that you take booking into your own hands, rather than relying on OTAs to bring new guests in. You want to be connecting with the community and becoming a part of it. We call our method of bringing in guests directly our Sales Blitz method, and we’re going to teach it to you today.




It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing the Winona House! This beautiful space is located in Roanoke, Virginia.

Here’s what we love about them: it’s a full home that is listed as a boutique hotel. You can rent the home in its entirety or rent one of the 4 units. This is a great reminder that you don’t have to think of a property as one unit. You can diversify or break it down and remix it if it seems too large. Go check out their listings to get some inspo on how they’ve done it!

They’ve kept a lot of the old-world charm in this historic home while keeping up with modern conveniences and we would love to come stay (let’s rent the whole dang thing!)

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
